My 6.5 year old DD came back from a visit at her grandfather and step-grandmother's house last night and her step-grandmother expressed a concern with me about DD.
She said while DD was at her house, she was laying in her bed watching cartoons with the neighbor girl (who is also 6). She told me she let them play with one of those hand-held vibrating back massager things (not a vibrator) and my DD was using it on her own back. When step-grandma came into the room to check on them, she said my DD had it on her privates (fully clothed) and step-grandma proceeded to ask her why she was doing that and DD said "because it feels good." Step-grandma then told me she took the back massager from DD and explained to both DD and the neighbor girl that it is inappropriate and unacceptable to touch their privates or let anyone else touch their privates.
My question is should I be concerned? I'm trying to figure this out and see where DD would have gotten this strange behavior from. She lives with me and her step-father (who's been more of a father to her (since she was 2) than her own dad has been) and visits her biological father (who lives with his mother) every other weekend.
I don't know if this is normal behavior for a 6.5 year old girl? I wouldn't think so, but I mean, eventually, they would discover their privates, right? What do you all think? Do I have a discussion with DD about this? If so, how do I go about discussing this with her? I don't even know where to start with this. Someone please help!
